Begun in 2010 as part of the “Histories of Literatures in European Languages” series sponsored by the International Comparative Literature Association, the current project on New Literary Hybrids in the Age of Multimedia Expression recognizes the global shift toward the visual and the virtual in all areas of textuality: the printed, verbal text is increasingly joined with the visual, often electronic, text. This shift has opened up new domains of human achievement in art and culture. The international roster of 24 contributors to this volume pursue a broad range of issues under four sets of questions that allow a larger conversation to emerge, both inside the volume’s sections and between them. The four sections cover, 1) Multimedia Productions in Theoretical and Historical Perspective; 2) Regional and Intercultural Projects; 3) Forms and Genres; and, 4) Readers and Rewriters in Multimedia Environments. The essays included in this volume are examples of the kinds of projects and inquiries that have become possible at the interface between literature and other media, new and old. They emphasize the extent to which hypertextual, multimedia, and virtual reality technologies have enhanced the sociality of reading and writing, enabling more people to interact than ever before. At the same time, however, they warn that, as long as these technologies are used to reinforce old habits of reading/ writing, they will deliver modest results. One of the major tasks pursued by the contributors to this volume is to integrate literature in the global informational environment where it can function as an imaginative partner, teaching its interpretive competencies to other components of the cultural landscape.

A quilt is a text. It speaks its maker's desires and beliefs, hopes and fears, sometimes in a language any reader can understand, but often in an obscure language available only to the initiated. The central idea of this book is that quilts and texts are inseparable. The author explores the concept of quilt-as-text through a series of paired chapters. The first chapter in each pairing examines quilting in a particular piece of American literature, reading the significance of textile in text. Contemporary quilt groups are the subject of the other chapter in the pair, exploring the textuality of textile.

In Estranging the Familiar, G. Douglas Atkins addresses the often lamented state of scholarly and critical writing as he argues for a criticism that is at once theoretically informed and personal. The revitalized critical writing he advocates may entail--but is not limited to--a return to the essay, the form critical writing once took and the form that is now enjoying a resurgence of popularity and excellence. Atkins contends that to reach a general audience, criticism must move away from the impersonality of modern criticism and contemporary theory without embracing the old-fashioned essay. "The venerable familiar essay may remain the basis," Atkins writes, "but its conventional openness, receptivity, and capaciousness must extend to theory, philosophy, and the candor that seems to mark the tail-end of the twentieth century." In noting the timeliness, if not the necessity, of a return to the essay, Atkins also considers our culture's parallel "return to the personal." When the essay combines good writing with the concerns of the personal, Atkins says, it becomes a form of criticism that is readable, vital, and potentially attractive to a large readership. Atkins hopes critics will tap into the revitalized interest the essay now enjoys without ignoring the considerable insights and advances of contemporary theory. He argues that despite claims to the contrary there is no inherent incompatibility between the essay and modern theory. As Atkins considers various experiments in critical writing from Plato to the present, notably feminist interest in the personal and autobiographical, he contends that these attempts, although undeniably important, fall short of the desired goal when they emphasize the merely expressive and neglect the artful quality good writing can bring to personal criticism. The final third of the book consists of a series of experiments in critical writing that represent the author's own attempts to bridge the gap between theory and popular criticism, between an academic and a general audience. In essays that illustrate the rhetorical power of the form, Atkins describes the reciprocal relationship between his life experience and a reading of The Odyssey, explains the role that theory has played in his personal development, and chronicles his attempts to find a voice as a writer.

"There are stories in quilts. And while it is the names of men that are most often recorded in history, the women were there all along; and the quilts they produced reveal much about the times in which they lived. In the words of one quilt maker, "Each quilt, step by step, speaks for its maker - her voice is clearly there, between the fabric and lines of stitches."" "Called by Brigham Young, the first Mormon pioneers arrived in Utah in 1847, bringing with them a quilting tradition that took root and flourished. In spite of sometimes bleak circumstances, the pioneer women possessed an urge for artistic expression that is universal." "To preserve this artistic heritage, from 1989-1994, the Utah Quilt Heritage Corporation documented over 2200 quilts crafted in Utah from settlement to 1950. With over 80 color plates, Gathered in Time showcases a representative selection of these remarkable quilts. Each quilt is accompanied by a story about its maker that carefully combines family and cultural history with equally fascinating details about color choice, available patterns, and quilting techniques."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

"As one of the founders of American Pop art, Roy Lichtenstein achieved an international prominence in the 1960s for his sly, provocative transformations of images from comics, cartoons, and advertisements, elevated to the realm of high art. Although Lichtenstein's work has been prodigiously exhibited and published, certain aspects of his inventive, prolific oeuvre have yet to be thoroughly examined. Among these relatively unknown bodies of work are the artist's pre-Pop adaptations of American history frontier themes in the 1950s and his "Amerindian" series of 1979-81." "Exploring what he called "a kind of conception of the over-reproduced," Lichtenstein reworked images of American Indians and their cultures as the cliched signs of high art and mass media in a fresh, modern way, "to erase the meaning of the originals" and create a new formal unity. This resulted in Lichtenstein's unique marriage of representation and abstraction, high art and popular culture."--BOOK JACKET.

As part of her household chores, Naomi looks after the chickens with her little sister, Ruth. One day Naomi and Ruth find an abandoned egg near the road. This is no ordinary chicken egg, though. In fact, surrounded by the simplicity and austerity of their Amish ways, this egg is almost "fancy." Naomi decides this special egg must be hatched. And when it is, it's plain to see that this is no ordinary chick! The girls manage to keep the chick, dubbed Fancy, a secret... until the day of the Vleckes' frolic, or community working bee. On this day, Naomi is to receive a white organdy cap, a family tradition, as a reward for her hard work and responsibility. But on this day, too, Fancy decides to introduce himself to the community. The results are a sheer delight, pure and simple. Patricia Polacco's passion has taken her into the heart of Amish country in search of a story.
